Immobile scored and got an assist as Dortmund ran out comfortable 3-0 winners against St. Pauli in the DFB Pokal Tuesday.

Immobile tapped in Shinji Kagawa's pass from close-range and later set-up Marco Reus' goal in a decent performance for the Italian. Immobile also had a goal ruled out for offside earlier on and was a threat throughout the game, particularly in the first half. He will have a much greater challenge at the weekend however when Dortmund travel to Bayern Munich.

Immobile came on as a 77th minute substitute but didn't manage to change the game as Dortmund lost 1-0 Saturday to Hannover.

Despite Immobile's goal in the last Bundesliga encounter with FC Köln, he was dropped to the bench against Hannover. Jurgen Klopp threw him on as a replacement for the ineffective Adrian Ramos but Immobile made no impact. He registered one shot in injury time but his rather extravagant attempt flew well over. With strikers Ramos and Immobile both being on poor form at the moment and Dortmund in desperate need of Bundesliga goals, Klopp will find it difficult to know who to pick next time around.

Immobile scored his second Bundesliga goal but was on the losing side as Dortmund lost 2-1 Saturday to FC Köln.

Immobile probably had his best game in a Dortmund shirt but was let down by another poor team display. Immobile's movement was excellent, he had four shots and finished superbly for the goal. Expect to see him remain in the starting line-up and start scoring more goals on the basis of this much improved performance.

Immobile had a lacklustre game, missing a couple of chances and being substituted after 65 minutes, as Italy clung on to a 1-0 win Monday against minnows Malta in European Championship Qualifying Group H.

Any hope that an international match against inferior opposition could be a way to get Immobile back in the goals and back on form were dashed as the striker toiled throughout and was substituted in the second half. He fired wide in the first minute and then missed a glorious chance when he headed straight at Maltese goalkeeper Andrew Hogg from close-range. Immobile will probably start on Saturday in the Bundesliga but will need to be far more clinical.

Immobile played the full 90 minuutes for Italy on Friday but couldn't get on the scoresheet as Giorgio Chilellini's brace saved his country's blushes in a 2-1 win over Azerbaijan in European Championship Qualifying Group H.

Very much like his recent Dortmund performances, Immobile started toothless and lacked a real cutting edge. However, when he was deployed further out on the wing, he became far more effective, making excellent runs and would have had an assist had Claudio Marchisio not blazed the chance over. This will be food for thought for Jürgen Klopp, who may find the Italian marksman more effective if played in a less central-striking role.

Immobile came on as a 78th minute substitute but could not influence the game as Dortmund were defeated 1-0 Saturday by Hamburg.

Immobile was relegated to the bench and was underwhelming in a brief substitute outing. He was very close to finding the net with his first touch but hit his shot tamely wide. Jürgen Klopp will have a headache deciding who will play up front when they visit Köln, with Immobile out-of-form and Adrian Ramos having a woeful match. Luckily that choice can wait two weeks with the international break on the horizon.

Immobile scored after just three minutes as Dortmund were comfortable 3-0 winners Wednesday against Anderlecht in Champions League Group D.

Follwing recent lacklustre performances, Immobile was chosen to start and rewarded Jürgen Klopp's faith in him. In the third minute Immobile applied a fine finish to a fanatastic lofted pass from Shinji Kagawa to score in consecutive Champions League games. Immobile will badly need to carry on this form in domestic competition where he has only managed one goal in five games so far.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Immobile missed two glorious chances and was substitued after 57 minutes in a game to forget for the striker as Dortmund slumped to a 2-1 defeat Saturday against Schalke.

Immobile has had his fair share of criticism since his arrival in the summer. The Italian desperately needed a good game to silence those critics but fell short. He was very wasteful, missing two great chances, including a shot blazed wide after finding himself one-on-one with the goalkeeper. Last season's Serie A top scorer will need to find form quickly to keep his starting berth.
